Your mom usually comes over but this year decided to stay home. The past two or three years it felt important to be around people. But this year I want solitude. I think I will take metro to one of the museums and stare at beautiful and interesting objects. I’ve thought about fasting today too. I haven’t had breakfast yet so that is still a possibility. Not sure why I thought of that but it did.
I’m glad its cold and rainy today, not warm and sunny like it was four years ago. The weather on April 29, 2010 was perfect, mid-spring, mid-Atlantic weather. It reminds me of September 11, 2001, which had perfect pre-autumn, mid-Atlantic weather.
After the boys get home we’ll let go purple helium balloons into the sky like we’ve done each year.
I haven’t cried yet but I did get a choked up yesterday driving home from work.
I think I’m going to call my brothers and sister and tell them I love them. I haven’t told them that in a while.
